Structural Geology
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
This course addresses many topics about how rocks break and deform, for which I try to emphasize applications to earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing, hydrocarbon extraction, and landscape evolution.

Structural Geology and Tectonics
Steve Hurst, University of Illinois at Chicago
Junior -senior level course introduction to structural geology and tectonics

Structural Geoloy
Elizabeth Goeke, Salem State University; Elizabeth Goeke, Vassar College
Structural Geology course that focused on how theoretical knowledge of the brittle and ductile behavior of a wide-range of geological materials can be applied to real-world problems.

Structural Geology
Angela Moore, Guilford College
An introductory structural geology course that includes the study of stress and strain, rheology, qualitative aspects of brittle and ductile deformation processes, and descriptive analysis. Tectonics is also ...

Microstructure and Rock Rheology
Whitney Behr, University of Texas at Austin, The
This course focuses on microphysical processes of deformation operative in the crust and upper mantle, with an emphasis on distinguishing these processes using microstructural analysis.

Structural geology
Howell Bosbyshell, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
Determination of the sequential development and the forces involved in the various structural features of the earth.

Advanced Field Geology
Steve Reynolds, Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus
This is a field-based course, taught during four weekends, spread out over the semester. Each trip generally visits a different locality in order to expose students to diverse types of geology, everything from ...

Active Tectonics and Urban Geology Field Trip
George Davis, The University of Arizona
Teaching of Active Tectonics provides context for examining contemporary deformation of the earth's crust as seen in regional examples and in the context of data and information drawn from regional tectonics, ...

Structural Geology
Geoffrey Pignotta, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire
The description and classification of geological structures and the theoretical and physical analysis of rock deformation. Field and laboratory techniques emphasize mapping and the tectonic analysis of geological ...

Structural Geology
Sarah Brownlee, Wayne State University
This is a required course for the Geology majors, and it covers the basics of structural geology including stress, strain, and deformation, and identifying structures. We use the text "Structural Geology of ...

Structural Geology
Seth Kruckenberg, University of Wisconsin-Madison
The prime purpose of this course is to improve your understanding of the deformation of the Earth's lithosphere, which is the focus of the study of structural geology. In my view, a first course in structural ...

Introduction to Volcanology
Erouscilla Joseph, University of the West Indies
The course will introduce students to Plate tectonics and volcanoes; including the processes that takes place at active volcanoes (eruptive mechanisms, effusive and explosive volcanism); methods and instrumentation ...

Structural Geology
Peter Davis, Pacific Lutheran University
A structural geology / tectonics course

Geological Applications of GPS Geodesy
Guoquan Wang, University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez
This course provides an overview of the major space geodetic techniques and focuses on the theory and practice of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The course also provides hands-on experience using GPS data to ...
